Found range unit to have weak spark. Lights, but takes a long time; too long. Also there are times when it will not spark at all. Will order parts and return in the evening to fix. 9/27/17 Found unit on. Removed bad ignition module. Installed new module with stand off so there is a one-inch gap for airflow so does not get as hot. Removed ignitor + adjusted 8 times to get to light consistently. Unit still not lighting perfectly.

Checked and found valves in compressor faulty upon start up, compressor was not pumping and then started pumping. Unit has high discharge and low suction. There is a restriction. Unit will need new cap tube and filter drier, but with comp. values sticking it may not be worth repairing. If compressor can be obtained under a parts warranty, I would say unit is worth fixing.
